Researchers at Cornell University have successfully fabricated a working loudspeaker using a 3D printer. Their work represents one of the first times a complete electronics device has been printed from scratch to a working product.
From the sound of it, it’s not a very good speaker. But then, that’s not quite the point. What’s particularly cool there is that a team of Cornell researchers created the whole thing using 3D printers — the plastic shell and conductive and magnetic pieces.
